    ridiculous battery life

    Updated to .890 about a week ago and have had to charge multiple times each day with normal usage. I came from a droid 2 then d2g and got at least a day on one charge. I have the Verizon extended battery. Im seeing on these forums that guys are getting a day and a half easy on a single charge. I have every flipping thing shut off and and dead in 6hrs. Wtf????

    I added everything I could except my emails to the "auto end" in the task killer. Worked for me, I get 12-14 hrs with good usage.

    I don't have any task killer cept for killing stubborn apps auto killer is frozen with bloatfreeze. These screens are a typical day for me on stock battery after some heavy usage at school.ridiculous battery life-uploadfromtaptalk1316515455671.png

    I get a good 15-20 hours with normal use (phone calls, internet, facebook, texting, gmail, etc..) after installing the leaked update. Before that it was easily 10+ hours.

    No auto-end task killer crap going on either (which is VERY bad for the OS).

    I did freeze most of the bloat including all the social services and whatnot which I am sure helped some.

    I used to use advanced task killer on my d1. This time I am using the one that came with the phone. I have it set to turn off selected 2 minutes after screen goes out.
    Gonna have to try the leak though, 15-20 hrs sounds real good.

    Yeah im thinking I might just take it in. Doesn't matter whether the screen is on 100% of the time and im tethering or if I have it shut off and don't touch it- the thing dies after 6hrs and is borderline on fire the whole time.

    I don't even think my Droid 3 has even been what I would call "warm", tethering, GPS'ing....anything.

    Maybe GPS'ing.....it's been above cool.

    What apps are you running? Take everything off of the auto-end list. Uninstall antivirus, security software, automatic task killers.
    Do you like uninstallable bloatware?
    It takes about 5 minutes to complain and it's kinda fun. Let's not be complacent!
